We spent a fabulous day in Arles. We bused there early this morning (cool morning, misty fields, lovely) and started our day with a coffee in a little cafe overlooking, well, so much history.
We then walked around the city for a few hours and my guy patiently waited while I snapped pictures left and right. There are so many beautiful sights and sites to see.
I also had an opportunity to visit the new Arles Vincent van Gogh Foundation. This exhibit shows one of van Gogh's works and his influence on contemporary artists. The current exhibits feature Yan Pei-Ming (Night of Colours) and Bertrand Lavier (L'Affaire Tournesols).
This is an original picture shown in the Foundation, by Vincent van Gogh, and is called Self-Portrait with Pipe and Straw Hat. It was painted in 1887.
And then of course, there are the random shots that one likes to take, just because.
I have made a list of some more spots I want to get to before we come home. Yes, I am starting to think of the coming-home part of the trip....time seems to be passing quite quickly now. I still feel as if there are quite a few things I want to do, but I am still trying to hold on to the relaxed feeling that has been such an enjoyable part of this trip. A hurry-hurry-slow. I can do this!!
More to do. More to show you. I'll be back.....
